Quilt Retro Blog Tour

I’m happy to be a part of the Quilt Retro blog tour today!


This book by Jenifer Dick is so cute! It’s filled with clear concise patterns, along with lots of encouragement form Jenifer about how to make the patterns your own.

But what really stood out about it to me was that it’s filled with appliqué. You don’t see a lot of appliqué in modern quilting, and it’s a nice change of pace to see it here. For example, check out the cover quilt, called Outside My Kitchen Window.

The book has so many detailed how to’s and tips and tricks for appliqué – so helpful for me since this is an area of quilting where I have so much learn!


And oh what’s that? You’d like to win a copy of Quilt Retro? Ok! Jenifer was generous enough to help make that happen!  Just leave a comment here and I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday.

This is just the start of the blog tour so tomorrow be sure to check out Quiltville for the next stop.

    Oh – this looks like just what I’ve been needing. I’m fairly new to quilting, and I’ve been a bit overwhelmed thinking about applique, but the photos you’ve included in your post make it look as though it really IS step-by-step which isn’t what I’m finding elsewhere. I’d love to win and see if I can tackle applique. Thanks!
